Publisher's Description

When the government raided their polygamist village, Spencer and her family fled to her husband's family's ranch in Mexico, where they lived in squalor and desolate conditions. Her inspirational story reveals how far religion can be stretched and abused and how one woman and her children find their way out, into truth and redemption.

Author Bio

Irene Spencer currently lives in Anchorage Alaska, with her husband Hector Spencer. During the 28 years of her first marriage to a polygamous husband, Irene gave birth to 13 children (all single births). She also adopted a newborn daughter, who became her ninth child. Irene has 121 grandchildren. She has 49 great-grandchildren. Among her many talents, she is an accomplished seamstress who sews for family and friends, she's a great cook and bakes pastries and homemade bread, she speaks Spanish and English fluently and has traveled to 23 foreign countries and 23 states.

Editorial Reviews

Spencer writes grippingly . . . in this brave and honest book, [and] lays bare the secrets of her heart and of a devastating religious practice—People Magazine (4-star review)
[Irene's] story will be emotional and shocking, but many readers will resonate with the universal question the memoir raises: how to reconcile inherited religious beliefs when they grate against social norms and the deepest desires of the heart.—Publishers Weekly
